Apple Retailer Says Mac Pro Will Go on Sale December 16
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) still hasn’t given a release date for the new Mac Pro besides saying it will become available sometime in December, but a German retailer has posted on its website that the Mac Pro will be available on December 16.
German site Conrad has started taking Mac Pro preorders, claiming that the computer will be ready for purchase on December 16, according to 9 to 5 Mac. While Conrad is an authorized Apple retailer and the Mac Pro is advertized on the site’s homepage — signaling that the listing is not an accident — it’s unlikely that Conrad has received any guarantee from Apple that the device will go on sale that day. Further, 9 to 5 Mac said that it’s most likely that Conrad is using the date as a placeholder to rack up preorders for the new computer.
Apple gave a little face time to the new computer at its media event mostly dedicated to unveiling the new iPad lineup at the end of October. The base model starts at $2999, and Apple promised the new computer would ship by the end of the year. The new Mac Pro has a unique cylinder shape, some impressive specs, and was assembled in the U.S.
